Woo hoo! Over here.........

foxysocks Thu 16-May-13 13:25:55

ouch anni, poor you. rest up today!

good idea to call donna ida for LLL, they are so lovely and helpful there

shop I can just about afford to keep shoes, tee and skirt for this months spends. JUST. but if I don't I would have more leeway for the imminent sales.

QueenCadbury - I'm about 5'11" possibly 6'. Used to hate it but now embracing it and it's dresses and heels all the way (well, for work at least) then I don't need to worry about trying to get suits!

McNally Thu 16-May-13 13:38:15

Damn. Too slow on the Outnet this morning. Glad you all got some good stuff. Am envy.

Also envy at 36 inch legs LLL. I have to get 6 inches cut off my J Brand 814s and I don't think they'd be long enough for you in the first place.

Poor you Anni. I did that quite recently and it really leaves you shaken. Hope you get the chance to take it easy. I'd only badly bruised my back though and it got better quite quickly after a painful first few days so fingers crossed for you.

Hi LLL, I think Citizens for Humanity and Seven do extra long.

Anni, what a fright you must have got, poor you.

Novice, the outfit sounds great and I am intrigued as to who you were meeting!

Lovely shoes, Foxy.

Gah, I missed the Wang on the outnet. I have my eye on a few things for the summer sales though so just as well.

Anyone after a budget version of foxy's shoes check these out

foxysocks Thu 16-May-13 14:53:09

is anyone willing to share their sales lists and ideas? not links, obv, but more general?

mine is

very dark grey/charcoal tshirt
tan leather sandals
white jeans
maybe a green jumper but am not sold on this idea!

foxysocks Thu 16-May-13 14:53:53

i really like those amber and considered them instead, but am not a patent fan. the nude look lovely though.

Just in from work...going to change into my white jeans ( I blame you all...worn once, but you lot have persuaded me to give them a go) as the sun is almost out up here and it could be my only chance this year grin
Ooh Novice lovely outfit, bet he noticed....go on out me out of my misery too, I won't be there on Sat.
Anni hope you're ok....scary, bloody stairssad
foxy love the shoes!
About to put new nail varnish on.....funny how nail colour can make you feel ( love the one you featured on your blog Amber).....
Hello LLL short arse here, no help at all, sorry.

I'm after:

That Charlotte Olympia toucan clutch (useful)
An Isabel marant jacket
Jimmy Choo flats
Ancient Greek sandals

Parisisalwaysagoodidea Thu 16-May-13 15:18:51

What colour varnish Dry? I'm currently waiting for this to dry.

Which AG sandals Amber? Or can't you link JIC?

On my need list are mostly things for my S.E. Asia trip:

A few vests that aren't racer back
A casual jacket in black, grey or white
Some sandals with an ankle strap. Maybe these
Black silk shorts, hopefully with lace hems
Silk vest tops (seen nice ones on & other stories)
Casual jersey dress like this one
A navy or cobalt slim maxi dress. Prob get one from H&M
A shift dress
Bandeau bikinis x2
A clutch bag. Pref black, white and yellow geometric print
Sungalsses. I'm thinking cat eye (slightly long face) grin
Still considering these

shopafrolic Thu 16-May-13 15:24:07

Love the fact that the clutch is top of the list Amber smile
Foxy try the skirt, but unless it's true love I'd send it back and wait for the sales......
My list but I have no money:
Brown jeans belt
Some kind of statement necklace
Arty ring
The green skirt!
And some kind of printed tee with a hard edge to it to wear with a biker and jeans - trouble is such tees don't come in Autumn colours so it'll probably be another grey one!
Oh and some long trousers to wear for Pilates (most gym gear comes up short on me) - speak to me Yoga master and tell me where you buy your gear from?

MarshaBrady Thu 16-May-13 15:26:46

I think we have another mnv thing! The Wang skirt!

I would like:

Flats
Skinnies in deep indigo
P Lim jumper
A summer dress

shopafrolic Thu 16-May-13 15:29:55

'Those' flats Marsha that shall not be named? Or just flats?

MarshaBrady Thu 16-May-13 15:31:39

lol yep the flats that shall not be named grin. I haven't even checked sizes not looking til I'm ready to roll.

shopafrolic Thu 16-May-13 15:32:47

So no-one wanted the cobalt silk top then? EBay it is.....

Parisisalwaysagoodidea Thu 16-May-13 15:48:16

Shop The top sounds beautiful. I would buy it off you but it isn't my size sad

QueenCadbury Thu 16-May-13 16:10:03

shop cobalt is perfect for me but it sounds like it will be too big if it's a 12? I'm normally an 8/10.

happyreindeer Thu 16-May-13 16:27:01

I am a lurker. Would it be very cheeky to ask AmberNectarine where her blog is please?

foxysocks Thu 16-May-13 16:28:02
happyreindeer Thu 16-May-13 16:30:00

Thank you very much foxysocks.

Cheers foxy, and happy it's normally more lovingly cared for. My proper job that pays for all the clothes has been getting in the way. Grrr.

Outnet order has been dispatched - expect to see me clad head to toe in Wang on Sat. Well no actually, because in don't have any shoes <deprived>

Paris
this one
But my nails are shorter and it applied better than that!shock Quite brave for me....I tend to be a sludge or dark woman, never brights, not as orange or expensive as the Chanel 'Holiday' I linked to the other day. Not sure really..........love your blue

Decameron Thu 16-May-13 16:43:29

I'm after
Pink gigis
Me & Em dress and leggings
Marc by Marc Jacobs/Anya/DVF small black bag
These jeans

Most of my pinterest list, in short!

Decameron Thu 16-May-13 16:44:12

Sweaty Betty is good, Shop.
Thread about to run out of space!

Hi all - I spent a couple of hours getting my hair done this afternoon, noticed the Wang stuff on the Outnet whilst there but frustratingly couldn't get phone to work to order what I wanted (mostly the same as you lot grin). Just managed to get the ivory racer back top and a white vest though. May also end up in one of those on Saturday grin - T by Wang...designer of choice for MNVgrin. If any of you get hold of the skirt in dark colour xs but don't want it please let me know!

LL welcome and envy! You can join Marsha in the long legs club! Also welcome Happy - stick around!

Anni you poor thing, falling down the stairs, its horrible, especially when carrying DC. We have a step down to our front door that is lethal when wet, I have slipped on it a few times, once with DS2 in my arms. Really scary.
